What to watch: Two Republican incumbents — Reps. Diane Black and Marsha Blackburn — are running for higher office (governor and Senate).

  • One more thing: There are five incumbents (4 GOP and 1 Dem) running for re-election who are facing multiple primary challengers. Watch for any upsets in those congressional races in the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 8th and 9th districts.

The U.S. has already celebrated Easter, graduations and so much more during the coronavirus pandemic, and now it can add July 4 to the list.

The state of play: Axios' Stef Kight writes public parades and fireworks displays around much of the country are being canceled to prevent mass gatherings where the virus could spread.
